How to Enroll
PPO $AVER PLAN
(Non-Represented Employees Only)
Beginning January 1, 2013, non-represented employees will have a new medical plan option: the PPO $aver Plan.
This new plan helps you take charge of your health and wellness by empowering you as the health care “consumer.” This guide will help you understand the PPO $aver Plan, so take some time to read about it and see if it’s right for you.
The new PPO $aver Plan has some things in common with our existing plans, as well as some differences. The PPO $aver Plan makes purchasing health care like buying any other product or service. It puts the control of health care spending — and the responsibility for managing your money — entirely in your hands.
Please review the following information to learn more about the PPO $aver Plan.
The District offers all eligible employees a Comprehensive Vision plan administered by MES Vision. Retirees are not eligible to participate in this plan. The cost for this coverage is $0.27 per month (tenthly) for Classified and Non-Represented employees and no charge for TALB members.
All LBUSD employees who are insured under one of the District's medical plans may request reimbursement for the cost of hearing aids.
The maximum amount of reimbursement is $1,000 per employee within a three-year period. This maximum includes the cost of hardware, fitting tests and other tests related to the hearing aids.
If you’re eligible, the District automatically provides you with life and AD&D insurance:
Ceridian will continue to be the FSA plan administrator.
The District gives you access to two flexible spending accounts (FSAs) — a Health Care FSA and a Dependent Care FSA. These accounts let you pay for certain expenses using pre-tax contributions — that means less of your paycheck goes to taxes and you take home more money! The FSAs are administered by FBMC.
When you take advantage of the FSAs, you can:
With FSAs, you can also save for expected out-of-pocket costs, such as:
When you enroll in an FSA, you elect how much money you want to contribute for 2012. The District then takes that amount out of your paychecks in equal installments — before taxes are taken out. You can then submit a claim for reimbursement from these accounts whenever you have eligible expenses.
However, it’s important to budget carefully, because any money that’s left over at the end of the year will be forfeited. And keep in mind that once you’ve elected a contribution amount, you’re not allowed to change it during the year unless you have a qualifying status change (although not all status changes allow you to change your contribution amount).
